Post World War II Movies

Post by Matt Wilson » Thu Oct 05, 2017 5:30 pm

Hollywood has had more and more low-budget cult classics since the end of World War II. But did movies actually get better?

I'm not too sure, what would you consider as better?

Well, I’ve been watching films for a very long time now, I’ve pretty much seen all the classics and a lot of the independent projects as well. And a lot of them are good for different reasons. But the movies that get cult following and stay in production for years normally have a great storyline, a straightforward plot and a really good script for the actors.

Okay, I see. I think The Count of Monte Cristo has always been my all-time favorite. Every time I watch it I listen to every word like I am listening to the words of a song.

Yeah, it might not have the HD graphics and all the fancy new stuff but that movie never gets old ;)

But there are some modern movies with a lot going for them. I think some of the Quentin Tarantino’s films are right up there with the classics.

I’ve been hooked on his stuff since the first time I saw Reservoir Dogs in the 90s

My all-time favorite Quentin Tarantino Movie has to be Kill Bill Vol. 2. It was just so full of action and comedy it took me years to actually follow all the major plot points as they happened
